Jonida wasn’t in the best shape of her life, and went on a low-calorie diet to change things – but it just didn’t work. Frustrated, she felt as though that she didn’t have anything to lose, and decided to try the 2-week challenge after finding Diet Doctor.
Want to know about her results?
Hi Dr. Andreas and the Diet Doctor team,
My story is similar to everyone else as far I have read on dietdoctor.com’s success stories. Everything started on April 2016 when I realised I had spine problems, overweight (25 kg – 55 lbs) and mother of 2 boys that needed a lot of energy. I had migraines and synositis every month, and my doctor advised me to lose weight. I was 94.6 kg (209 lbs), and 168 cm (5 foot 5 inches) tall.
I started a diet, eating 5 times per day, low carb, but low fat as well. You can imagine it was very difficult to feel satisfied, I was constantly hungry, and after 2 weeks I was feeling tired. I started to research on the web, because I hardly lost 2 kg (4 lbs) with this diet in 2 months. When I read Dr. Andreas website I was desperate, my neck ache was worsening and I couldn’t make it anymore. I didn’t have anything to lose, I said let’s eat not so often and more fat.My ideal weight would be 68 kg (150 lbs). I decided to take the 2-week challenge, and I felt on the second week that my hunger disappeared, my mood was great, I lost 7 kg (15 lbs) in the first month compared to 2 kg (4 lbs) in 2 months with my previous diet. My husband said that you are crazy you are eating a lot of calories, you will have high cholesterol and other things that you can imagine, but I decided to continue. On the second month may 2016 I started intermittent fasting 16:8 and I lost 7 more kg (15 lbs). Now after 11 months I lost 20 kg (44 lbs), I am 74.4 kg (164 lbs).
To celebrate my victory and to show all my interested friends and family members that I was perfectly fine and normal I did a medical check up on September 2016. My cholesterol is perfect, my blood and urine and general check up analysis are perfect, except a little bit anaemic. I have a lot of energy; I look and feel like a new person.
Although I am 37 years old, I look much younger now, thanks to LCHF and intermittent fasting 16:8, which I follow every day, except on Sundays, when I celebrate and have a breakfast with my family (fried eggs and bacon usually).
Something really important my husband, 41 years old, lost 7 kg (15 lbs) having a moderate to liberal LCHF so you can imagine us as a happy family. I convinced my biggest contestor.
Thank you for all the materials, updates and articles and videos you sent us. I have shared with some friends in my country, so you will have some Albanian visitors.
With love from Jonida
